Epic Rap Battles of History are back with the first episode of season 5. Watch above as two heavyweight authors, J. R. R. Tolkien and R. R. Martin, go head-to-head.

The creators of Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings are two of the greatest fantasy writers of all-time, and Epic Rap Battles' co-creators EpicLLOYD and Nice Peter help us imagine what they'd be like if they were vicious MCs in this fun video. In addition to the stinging zingers like "You went too deep, Professor Tweed Pants / We don’t need the backstory on every fucking tree branch" and "And I’m more rock and roll than you’ve ever been / Don’t believe me? Ask Led Zeppelin" are complimented by top notch production and costume design.
